How long does it take for the swelling to go down and the final result to shape after a breast augmentation?

Published on March 27, 2013

The final shape after a breast augmentation can take up to 6 months to take effect.  There often times is swelling of the upper portion of the breast which is worse when the implant is under the muscle.  Also the implant can be high on the breast and take a few months to settle  into the appropriate position.  This has to do with the breast stretching out and the swelling going down enough to allow the tissues to stretch.
